Ethics in Difficult Situations

Engineering ethics is a field of study that investigates how engineers can —and should—carry out their duties by providing a variety of frameworks that help make sense of what their obligations are, what virtues belong to good engineers, and what outcomes the engineering profession ought to hold important. But is there a one-size-fits-all code of ethics? Or are there situations that call for principles to be modified, bent, or even ignored? Are ethical principles, specific to the engineering profession or otherwise, relative? Does this mean that, as the adage goes, “when in Rome, do as the Romans”? Carlos Bertha will be discussing these difficult and ultimately philosophical questions in some detail and will present “ethical pluralism,” which attempts to provide a compromise to both absolutism and relativism. Carlos will draw upon his experiences as a resident engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan to help inform this question. 1 PDH
